CEDAR CREEK (Grayson County). Cedar Creek rises four miles northeast of Howe in southeastern Grayson County (at 33°31' N, 96°31' W) and runs first northwest, then northeast, for four miles to its mouth on Choctaw Creek, three miles southeast of Sherman (at 33°35' N, 96°33' W). The local flat to rolling prairie with some steep slopes is surfaced by deep to shallow expansive clays and clay and sandy loams that support oak, juniper, water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses.
